This week, I wanted to focus again on studies that have been done which show the truth behind chiropractic care. We read two wonderful articles about what chiropractic care can do for two completely different kinds of disorders, but both are chronic and can be life altering. In fact, both have the capability to keep the sufferer inside for most of their lives. Here at DiBella Chiropractic, we never want you to feel like you need to stay home and we will do everything we can to get you healthy again. Here is a recap of what we learned this week.
The first article was about Crohn’s Disease and other similar disorders. As I said, I have grown up with most of my family suffering from these and was amazed to hear about the study of over fifty patients who were used to find a strong link between these digestive disorders and chiropractic care. It was found that most people who have Crohn’s Disease or something like it have misalignments in their lower backs and it was postulated that this may be a cause and effect situation, as those who received treatment for those issues in their spines showed decreased symptoms of the disorder.
The second article was about a seven year old boy who suffered from allergies and asthma as well as chronic colds that were so severe he had to make monthly trips to the doctor, would miss at least a day or two of school every month, and had to take two medications every day plus his nebulizer. I don’t know about you, but getting my ten year old nephews to take medication when they’re sick is difficult enough, but this boy had been diagnosed at five months and had been suffering ever since. However, through chiropractic care, he was able to stop his need for the medication within two weeks and didn’t need to miss a day of school due to sickness all year with continued treatment.
Once again, I read these studies in awe. I may know just how much chiropractic care can change someone’s life, but sometimes I forget just how different those lives are. Someone who is five months old and suffering, and continues to suffer for years, until they finally find the thing that helps is saddening. I am simply so happy that they were able to find what worked for them through chiropractic care.
